Episcopalians consider themselves to be people whose individual and corporate lives are shaped by the Book of Common Prayer, but aside from worship on Sunday morning, few know what fills its nearly 1,000 pages.

Will Our Children Have Faith Book Description :

Originally written in 1976, revised in 200, and translated in six languages, this classic critique of Christian education is newly revised and expanded and includes Westerhoff's overview and perspective on the state Christian education over the past forty years-plus his role in that history. According to Westerhoff, instead of guiding faith formation within the family, the church, and the school, we relegate religious education to Sunday morning classes. There, children learn the facts about religion, but how will they learn or experience faith? How can we nourish and nurture the faith of children, instead of only teaching the facts?...

Living Faithfully Book Description :

The faith we proclaim on Sunday is just as relevant to the rest of the week. However, too often the teaching and support that church life offers us can seem aimed at deepening our personal commitment to Christ and our involvement in church activities, rather than enabling us to live out our faith at work and in the world. We need to close the gap between sacred and secular, and that's what this book aims to help us do. Each chapter identifies an issue, explores how we might respond and encourages us - through practical ideas, stories, humour, quotes, Scripture, questions and prayer - to seek to make a difference....

Struck Down But Not Destroyed Book Description :

We all struggle with anxiety at various points in life, some of us more than others. In fact, some 40 million Americans are treated for anxiety disorders each year. Anxiety is a real and present threat. And for some of us, anxiety is a crippling condition. It strikes us down physically and spiritually. We feel isolated, weak, and hopeless. But there is hope. When we see our anxiety in the context of our relationship with God, we can learn more about how he is using it to shape us. Rather than spending all of our time, energy, and resources trying to eliminate this alleged "weakness," we can accept the truth that anxiety is a mighty tool in the hands of God. Through it, he will do more in us that we thought possible. In the weakness of anxiety, God gi...
